Pre-internet days we were promoting Australia as a destination to study. We would need to fly overseas with a literal ton of magazines about colleges and unis where students would come to these huge exhibitions. Out of 10,000 students we might give out several hundred mags a day. That went on for 3 days. Add flights, hotels, taxis etc and you get the picture? The ROI for the unis and colleges who were essentially paying for the ads in the magazines to get more students to learn was very low. Back in Australia I said to the chief if I could buy his magazine and put it on the internet. He laughed and said $10,000. I eventually turned that into Hyperstudy.com and EdMedia and sold them. A few years later I was working on a project in the Philippines with a large micro-finance organisation and we were in Tondo, Manila.

As we were walking along a jetty to a funeral we were attending there were a group of young fellas hanging around not doing much. I asked the bloke I was with why they weren’t in school or working. He said their organisation’s focus was to help women and that youth didn’t fit that category. That evening back at the hotel at dinner I said to my colleague that I was going to start a computer telecenter for youth so they learn how to make websites and promote local businesses.   I won’t even tell you the objections I got to that idea.

Nevertheless, that year I registered OrphanIT.com as a fully incorporated non profit with the Philippines SEC and opened the Philippines very 1st award winning ICT telecentre. That was way back in 2002. Technology outpaced me. Moores Law. So I said to myself  ’You can Stay Where you are, you can. But, you can’t stay where you are and try to go where you’re going’

Many brilliant humanists  with their knowledge, entrepreneurial attitude, global community spirit and use of the latest internet technology have now been able to provide what OrphanIT.com was unable to achieve to the technical restraints we faced in the early days of the internet.
